    Dozens of vehicles were either destroyed or damaged when a fierce blaze scorched about two acres of a Fontana pallet yard Sunday night.

    Firefighters responded to the fire in the 13800 block of Slover Avenue just before 10 p.m., according to Capt. John Lansing of the San Bernardino County Fire Department.

    About two acres of the five-acre yard was burning when firefighters arrived. More than 60 fire personnel worked to extinguish the blaze.

    Lansing said 10 vehicles were lost and 31 semi-trucks were damaged in the fire. Total damage was estimated at about $1 million.

    Firefighters saved about $5 million in surrounding properties, Lansing said.

    No injuries were reported in the fire and its cause was under investigation.
